“The indomitable Reacher burns up the pages.”—USA Today

 
Four people in a car, hoping to make Chicago by morning. One man driving, another telling stories that don’t add up. A woman in the back, silent and worried. And a hitchhiker with a broken nose. An hour behind them, the FBI descends on an old pumping station where a man was stabbed to death—the knife work professional, the killers nowhere to be seen.
 
All Jack Reacher wanted was a ride to Virginia. All he did was stick out his thumb. But he soon discovers he has hitched more than a ride. He has tied himself to a massive conspiracy, in which nothing is what it seems, and nobody is telling the truth.
 
“Furious action . . . [Lee] Child keeps the pacing swift and the surprises rolling. . . . [A] feverishly thrilling series.”—The Miami Herald
 
“Smart, breathless . . . [with] one of the best female characters in the whole Reacher series.”—The New York Times
 
“Subtle and nuanced [with] seductive writing and irresistible plot twists.”—Newsweek
 
Don’t miss Lee Child’s short story “Deep Down” and a sneak peek of his new novel, Never Go Back, in the back of the book.

Not bad!

User Review  - Ramanathan Gop... - Flipkart

The story telling is so awesome that it keeps you occupied. The frequent mention of weapons, FBI, cars, etc. keeps your interests going. But if you look at the plot itself it is not very satisfactory ... Read full review

Worth it!

User Review  - Adarsh - Flipkart

A certain worth the price book. Although the story starts off at a very slow pace and the slow pace continues for quite sometime. After which, the story becomes engrossing and very interesting. Action packed in the end of course. Need not think twice to read this book. Read full review
